I haven’t started
my period yet

#firstperiod

Don’t worry. The average age for a girl to start her period is 13. But in reality, it is common for girls to start anywhere between the ages of 8 and 18.
As there’s no way of predicting when it'll start, it’s a good idea to keep some pads in your bag when you’re out and about. Lil-Lets Teens day pads are nice and slim and come in discreet packaging so no one will know you've got any in your bag.

what happens
when it
does arrive?

#firstperiod

When it does arrive for the first time, for some girls they notice either a tiny bit of blood in their underwear or on some toilet paper. Although it may be an awkward conversation, you need to have the chat with your nearest and dearest (like your mum or sister) so they make sure you have products for this period and the next one.

Study girl

Im 13 and I havent had my period yet and I have had all the signs of puberty. Its just really embarrassing when all the girls in my grade has it and some of my sisters friends that are younger than me!

Why?

I am 13 and pretty much everyone in my year had started their period, and some of my sisters friends, who are 11 have even started. Why haven’t I?

Coral

I am 12, all my friends have started except me,

Luxy

I haven't started yet either but I do and don't want it. I keep asking my mum when will I start, I'm 10 and she was my age when she started. She said I should be glad I don't have periods yet but I want to be a woman.

Mya
